Coastal Adventures Summer Camp’s goal is to let children explore the wonderful sights of the coast and
peninsula. Each day we pick up a small group of children and take them on an awesome adventure that they
will remember. The summer is broken up into theme weeks. Each day we take children to amazing
locations. Once there we will explore the area, play active games, do stunts, and just hang out. The three
theme weeks are: Beach Week, Bike Week & Exploration Week.

               What is the Right week for your child?
Beach Week:
During this adventure week the children will be exploring different beaches, playing games and doing
activities that will accommodate a wide variety of ages and abilities. We will have suitable activities for
ages 6 to 12. Beach week is perfect for children that want to get their “feet wet” in summer adventure.
         Highlights Include: Huge Bamboo Forts, Rock Jumps, Tide Pools, Gravel

         Driftwood Forts. Monkey Tree, Blowhole, and so much more.

Exploration Week:
You won’t believe the trails that are in our backyard! This adventure week will take the children places
they won’t forget. We will be doing a couple of long hikes to amazing locations. (about 4-5 miles) There
will be many places for games, stunts and activities along the way to keep the children going. This week is
perfect for children not afraid of a little adventure.
         Highlights include: Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, Indian Rock, Lands End
         Coastal Trail, Huge Maze, Sutro Baths, Underground Bunkers, Labyrinth,

Bike Week:
Bike week is going to be an active adventure week. Jon has a couple of lengthy bike rides
planned (8-10 miles), packed with adventure. We will see so many cool things and do so
many activities. All of our rides are on a bike path or dirt single track. Children will get to
experience some of the best single – track trails the peninsula has to offer. Bike week is
perfect for children that are comfortable on a bike and can handle a couple of long rides.
